“CM’s son drops a year and works hard to get into NLSIU, India’s top Law School with an AIR of 40 in CLAT,” wrote one Twitter user, praising both son and father.
CM’s son drops a year and works hard to get into NLSIU, India’s top Law School with an AIR of 40 in CLAT. And, the CM despite his schedule does not forget the Pitrudharma & accompanies the son to settle him, just like a middle-class father would have. Himanta Da is pure gold?
